IIRC, for any ASL vets out there, interested in, or playing this game, its a lot closer to the Starter Kits than full blown ASL. So there are NO Snipers, Multi-story buildings, Bypass Movement, Concealment, Prisoners and quite a few other full ASL rules.


I purchased this game recently, and I am really enjoying it. I have played ASL and know of Starter Kits, but I am not trying to steer future development of TotH towards either one. This is a tactical computer game that I think is very well done, in fact the best one of this type I have ever played on the computer. I thought this was a feature request thread, so I am just giving my opinion of what I think would be a nice added feature to an excellent game. A sniper feature is a legitimate feature request in any tactical level wargame. I am not weighing in on priorities because I also like a lot of the other suggestions too, and would be happy with any added new features in the future.

Inspired by Technikzauberer & UP844 in their recent thread Scenario Design -'Frozen' Units

quote:

Technikzauberer: '[...]options for emulating unready or surprised units'


quote:

UP844: 'the possibility of setting a personnel unit state (Good Order/Pinned/Broken)'


+2

I totally subscribe to this idea which would greatly enrich the possibilities offered to the scenario designers
while preserving (IMO) the spirit of the game wanted by Peter.
Excessivily detailed Table of Equipment means inevitably more complex rules of use greedy in memory resources
and time of computation and leads to forget that essential goal: to keep the priority on the game's fluidity...
and also favor the scenwriters' imagination!

what we really need to do is not go down the path of ASL .
A lot of options that you require a degree in to understand , then find that there are not many others who have the same degree and dedication.
After all , to attract new followers , it is better to give them a condensed version of the bible rather than the whole book.
Even at this point of the game , someone picking it up ,playing a scenario , has to be daunting .

Let's not be too hasty to keep TotH dumbed down to attract new players but fuselex has a point. My remedy, TotH 2!

Sorry if this has been said before, My request is a more graphical terrain.
This game is great to play, but I wish the graphics were a bit more like newer Close Combat titles.

I suggest during the Movement Phase that AFV's that have moved would have a (moved) indicator like the infantry.
Sometimes I forget which AFV has moved during the Movement Phase. Now and then I forget which AFV moved so
when I unknowingly select an AFV that moved and start the AFV just to find out it has moved and now the AFV is
stuck in Motion because the AFV was halted with 1 MF to spare. Just enough to start. I believe this is a minor fix to
show AFV's that moved to have (moved) as a suffix like the infantry during the Movement Phase. Thanks

Hi, I’m new to the whole forum thing so I can’t seem to start a new thread yet. I’m trying to understand what features with respect to afvs, that are included in this sim. First: is there a noticeable difference in armor thickness for the different sides of an afv, second: are there different facings for turrent and body, third: is there a hull down status so that big guns with light armor such as tank destroyers become useful as in reality. I really like the concept of the game but these are things that really made the original squad leader pretty great. A dug in 88, a low silhouette tank destroyer, Shermans hull down on a ridge!

eobrian2,

Here the answers:

First: is there a noticeable difference in armor thickness for the different sides of an afv? There is usually a different armor rating for front and side/rear of AFV's.
Also, there is an armor rating difference between hull vs turret. Whether the difference is noticeable or not is dependent on the AFV.

second: are there different facings for turrent and body? Yes, the turret can face differently from the hull.

third: is there a hull down status? No

That, or maybe mods could be created that can be purchased and installed separately (using JSGME) for those who want to get into the more detailed aspects that ASL offered. Seems like a win-win that way.

How about a double-click on stack to select the hex and all units? (without anyone having to unlearn or relearn the default one-click-then-possibly-many-clicks method).

Double clicking to select all units in a hex, is not as easy because the selection validation function would need to change depending on a current segment in a turn. Are you in a movement segment, fire segment? Where only good order units can move/fire (pinned units cannot always fire, wounded leaders cannot move etc). in Rout Segment, it's all about broken+ units. Each time a unit is selected in any given segment the game makes an assessment if it's a valid selection or not. What if you want to select all units in a hex in Rout Segment, you select some broken+ units but you also select this way two leaders at the same time...this is not allowed. It's not as simple guys as you might thing...

What if a double-click was seen by the game as a string of single selections? (each being subjected to the disqualification tests, sequentially)

Are you guys still active at all around here? As one of the 3 guys that owns MMP I would LOVE to talk to some of you players and more importantly some of the designers to see if there isn't some way to work together. Given the game is pretty much ASL, and copied ASL (Which btw I don't care, someone did an amazing job with this product)if this game could add some things (Firegroups, SW usage of opposing SW, and about 2 million other little odds and ends)I honestly think there would be a chance to kick start this with MMP and possibly HASBRO behind it.... Anyway, fantastic community and an amazing amount of work by you modders!

I've been away from the game for almost a year but would be happy to share any input I could. IMHO, this game atm, is sort of a mix of SASL and ASLSK. At minimum, I would love to see walls, hedges, multi story buildings and a few other things.

Double-click on a hex to select all units in the hex. This seems to be the standard in many games. This would be a good feature.
\




Oh yes. The unit selection process is quite annoying in ToH. Simply Clicking on a stack with LMB should select it. This is standard in most software.

I ike the way stack selection is implemented in VASSAL. With a double-click, you can "disperse" a stack, then easily select units individually .

It is very click heavy. Having to click "go on" after every enemy action, even when there's nothing you can do, and having to reselect moving units after they are shot at, are major pains in the arse.

Oh yes. And it seriously deters me from playing.

The game could definitely be made more user-friendly, by changing the way the clicks and drags are designed.

- Line of sight toggle: When I select a unit then hit a key, highlight all of the hexes that I can see.

My wishes for the features:
- hotkeys
- bunkers, entrenchements, fortifications...


I am another engineer who is willing to help this brave game designer ! ;)

Agree, I don't play the game due to the interface. Too much clicking with keyboard
